A few hours after this duel, the two teams face each other again. This time there will be a duel between PAOK Saloniki and Panathinaikos Athens in the first leg of the Cup quarter-finals.

In the Greek Cup, which will be held under the name “Kypello Elladas”, the promoted team will determine the first and second leg from the round of 16 onwards.

Although PAOK suffered a bitter defeat at the weekend, bookmakers see PAOK Saloniki against Panathinaikos according to current odds.

PAOK Saloniki – Statistics & current form

Due to the 2-0 defeat last weekend, the team of head coach Abel Ferreira had to lose the place at the top of the table. And it looks as if the team won’t be able to make the leap back to the top this season. Greek football is once again sinking into chaos and rumors have been circulating in recent days that PAOK Saloniki is threatened with forced relegation.

However, this is not due to financial problems, but it has become known that the owner of the Greek champions, Ivan Savvidis, has also taken control of league competitor Xanthi through a relative. A violation of the law.

Although a law has been passed that prevents forced relegation, PAOK still faces a penalty of between five and ten points. So the chance of successfully defending the title should only be of a theoretical nature.

The PAOK club management was indignant and accused the league of attempting to divide the country into two parts (south to north). Riots in the coming weeks and months would not be a surprise in Greek football.

For the players, however, this topic should only be a secondary location. Nevertheless, it is difficult to imagine that the Ferreira team can completely hide this story. Given this, we have a bad feeling that a tip on the home side will be successful in the cup first leg between PAOK Saloniki and Panathinaikos Athens.

Panathinaikos Athens – Statistics & current form

In the meantime, all doubts about the top form of Panathinaikos Athens have gone. Last weekend Georgios Donis’ team impressively demonstrated that the latest results were not due to chance.

Even before the top game against the champions, Panathinaikos Athens had a broad chest in the face of four zero wins in a row. After the fifth league win in a row without conceding a goal, the green-whites are finally “on fire”.

With now 37 points from 22 league games, the 20-time champion climbed up in the table and has meanwhile made the connection to AEK Athens (four points behind). The two top teams from Piraeus and Thessaloniki have already rushed; this backlog can no longer be made up.

In this respect, the domestic cup competition offers the last chance of winning the title in the current season. Accordingly, we expect the Donis eleven to be relatively similar to last weekend.

Big changes are not expected, but a little rotation is definitely necessary, because AEK Athens is the next top game at the weekend. One cracker chases the next, but given the outstanding form, these direct duels are certainly not inconvenient.

The Donis-Elf feels visibly more comfortable at home, nevertheless we do not see any value between PAOK Saloniki and Panathinaikos when tapping on the home side due to the current strong form. In the current constitution, the guest elf can also be trusted to win a point abroad.
